    When you want to link to another link that relates to yours, do you get permission from the Author first?

      I think you should simply link it, and if the author has a problem, you can remove it later.

        I want to do whatever is courteous. I can't imagine anyone having a problem getting linked to a Hub; I'd be pleased to have mine linked.

      I always ask the other Author first.

        I have decided to ask the Author if I may link.

          That is nice of you, but you are doing a greater favor than you can ever know by linking to someone else.

          It really isn't a case of asking permission, although I see you have gone down that route, but really your adding a link, especially if it is an in-text link, is an incredibly powerful SEO boost to the other site.

            You know what they say, "You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours!"  I just found the perfect Hub to link to my Christmas Angels Made Out Of Ribbon. She graciously said I could.  A good Hub deserves recognition, I think.  No sure what you mean by "in-text" link.  I go to their Hub, copy and paste into my link.

              An in-text link in the scenario you just described would be if you highlighted the text in your own hub where it said a phrase that described this other hub (better if not exact title) and used the link chain to put in the URL to this other hub.

              It might seem like adding a link at the bottom of your hub with a nice comment is better, but it isn't. In-text links are amazing.

                I did the "in-text" link, I just didn't know that's what it is called.  I learn something new every day.  Thanks.

      I love it if an author links my articles with one of theirs. I don't really have a problem with it, nor do I think it's necessary to ask permission. If your topic is somewhat controversial, then I would be sure to ask, but otherwise I think it's fine.

        The other important aspect of this, is if you have bestowed the honor of linking another hub to yours, or if someone else has linked your hub to theirs, then please don't return the favor on the same hub.

        By doing so, you will de-value the link they gave you.

        Two-way links links look to Google like "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours". False, in other words.

        Instead, if the other person has a blog or website on a closely related topic, consider adding a link to that, if you think that they have written it well.
